Happy kids mittens – new pattern

Happy kids mittens – new pattern

It’s been weeks since I’ve seen the sun here in Stockholm and if it weren’t for all the happy colours in my stash I would probably go crazy. So, to keep me from going insane and to keep my hands busy (as If I needed any more projects for that!) I wrote up the pattern for my boys’s favourite mittens and hope that they will keep us and you happy on dark and cold winter days. And it’s only one…

Autumn is upon us with full might, rainstorms and even the first snow, so it’s about time for more cozy knitting. I am very happy to present to you the third set of pattern in my Norse series.

New pattern: Oden’s Mitts and Socks + Giveaway

Hooray! It’s autumn! And autumns means cold, windy and possibly even rainy days and looong evenings best spent on your favourite knitting spot (aka sofa) with a cuppa tea and loads of yarn to cuddle with. What better way to kick off this knitter’s season than with a set of new patterns? Maybe add a giveaway, too?

New pattern: Jormungandr Mitts and Socks + Giveaway

After socking it for the biggest part of this year I am finally ready for something new. So when I was reading Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythoogy this summer I got inspired to design a set of patterns inspired by the characters of these stories. So I wrote and knitted, ribbed, knitted again, annoyed my test knitters (I love you ladies, you know that!! Right??) and finally had my first set of patterns ready to show. The Jormungandr Socks and Mittens…

Work in progress

Work in progress

The summer break is almost over and it’s HOT! And by hot I mean that it’s HOT! But if you are thinking that I am referring to the weather, you’re mistaken (well, not quite, but… oh). Because I have extremely hot news for you. All summer long my brain has been on meltdown mode and I barely had the energy to breathe. But apparently it helped hatching some new ideas. In between almost finishing my #24pairsofsocks challenge and cooling down…

Getting down to business – cast on frenzy

Getting down to business – cast on frenzy

The list of things to do in 2018 is set. Now I just need to cast on and knit as much as I can! Last Wednesday’s project is finished and it’s time to move on in the de-stashing-frenzy: 3 projects are up simultaneously: 1: My everyday-easy-to-knit pair of commuter mittens or socks (you’ve got to have some variation, right?) which will use up my beautiful stash of non-Sockables Schoppel Zauberball collection (This is only 1/10th of it, don’t worry :P)…

Of scraps and happy elephants

You get it. I’m a yarn junkie. But admit it: So are you, or you wouldn’t be reading this 🙂 So you know I’m addicted to these little bits and scraps of yarn that some people call leftovers, yes? I keep piling them up in a vase, where I can see them every day and they keep calling to me. Take me! Knit me! Be creative NOW! Some days it’s almost unbearable, that noise they make! Well. This time I…

NEW PATTERN RELEASE: Convertible Monster Mittens

Yes, I know, it’s still summer and who would even think about knitting mittens now in this… well, not heat exactly but – you know – kind of summer-y weather? Raise your hands if you would. Ha!
